The highly renowned and popular 7 official Wonders of the World, as any other thing in this universe, have their darker counterpart, namely the 10 notorious wonders of the world, a mere result of negative human impact. These 10 consequences should be taken more into consideration as they are mistakes the human race should learn from, and most importantly, never repeat again.
Auschwitz was the largest and most horrific death camps during the Holocaust, where genocidal Nazi monsters used to roam free, being responsible for the deaths of over a million Jews. The concentration camp is now a museum, so people can actually visit and acknowledge the atrocities the human race is capable of.
Chernobyl was one of the world’s greatest disasters, as in 1986 the nuclear energy power plant had a meltdown and exploded, releasing tons of radioactive material that still affects and even kills people to this very day.
Ground zero needs no explanations as the tragic event of the World Trade Center is unfortunately imprinted in human history.
Little boy’s ashes is the burnt-in imprint result of one of the victims who simply deteriorated on the spot when the first atomic bomb, at Hiroshima, was dropped.
The ashes of Pompeii refers the unearthed Roman city that was completely buried under layers of volcanic ash after the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, in 79 AD. Some of the remaining statue-like corpses of those killed by this devastating phenomena are actually making up a quite macabre looking scene.
Trail of tears: this is a designated historical site reminding of a dark American history chapter, standing for the interstate pathway where numerous Native Americans were gathered and forced to evacuate their homes, eventually dying in concentration camps and of disease or starvation.
Guantanamo Bay: this is a dreadful place outside the U.S. legal jurisdiction where unusual torture is practiced (simulated drowning or blasting terrible music at deafening volumes) during interrogation.
Alcatraz: the safest prison in the world, the Alcatraz caged the most famous and worst criminals such as Al Capone and Robert Stroud. Although several have attempted to escape, they were either recaptured, shot or were lost at sea.
L.A. Smog: due to pollution, this grey-looking cloud covering L.A. is not only harmful to the ozone layer, but also to the human health.
Guatemala city sinkhole: recently formed in Guatemala and growing ever since gulping more and more buildings, caused by a much too bigger weight of constructions on the surface of the soil.
